Something completely different today…
Feeling on top of the world!
(Well, Germany anyway!)
Recently my sister visited me here in Bavaria, and we drove down to Garmisch on the German/Austrian border to cool down at the top of Germany’s highest mountain: the Zugspitze.
Do we really want to go up there?
Okay, here goes…
This view made it all worthwhile!
There’s a sausage kiosk at the top, a beer garden(!), a restaurant and the obligatory souvenir kiosks. But it was still magical.
The way down is on a rack/cogwheel railway, mostly in a tunnel, but the lower half of the journey was above ground and I could see so many beautiful alpine flowers. I only managed to get a photo of this one…
Alpenrose (Rhododendron hirsutum)
Have a wonderful day everyone!
